Applying to Camp

There will be no 2021 Teagarden Jazz Camp, but we will (barring unforeseen circumstances) definitely be offering camp next year.

The 2022 camp dates will be: Week One, July 25 - 30; Week Two, August 1 - 7.

The camp is open to young musicians, between the ages of 12 and 20, who play:

  • Any instrument! We focus on Traditional Jazz, and have historically accepted only the typical jazz instruments. This year, we have decided that any instrumentalist can learn to improvise and play jazz, and so we are happy to welcome you whatever your instrument of choice is. Of course, we also accept vocalists.

We are limited to a total of 72 campers per week. Preference is given to campers who are sponsored by their local jazz society, or by a donor.
